Friday Finishes (A Skirt and Top)

Another outfit for ME!

I picked this pattern, view 'F'.  It's my standard spring/summer top because it fits me nicely!  And, I purchased this orange knit fabric for my top...

I really like this skirt pattern, view 'C, also.  The fabric is a thrift find...a cotton drape/curtain that I featured in "Junk Love"!

I love the combination!

Enjoy the weekend!  HAPPY SEWING!

Friday Finishes

1.  It began as a medallion center quilt block

...and, ended up a cute mini-bag!

In this book, Patchwork Style, they used a log cabin quilt block.  I made the medallion center quilt block for a Round Robin that did not happen.  What a perfect project to use this quilt block!

2.  Playsuit (vintage pattern)

This is one style I loved wearing back then and will wear now...rompers and jumpsuits (playsuits)!

  Some pattern alterations included making the shorts longer for me and, of course, the obvious.  It turned out well and I'm satisfied with the fit!

Have a Great Weekend and...

Junk Love...Beads, Fabrics, and MORE Patterns!

Happy Hump Day!

I'm so glad to report that I found a new and exciting thrift store...and, worth the drive!  Here's some goodies I found!

...bag full of vintage patterns for $1.90.  When I have a chance to clean out my storage, I think I might have some giveaways!

...with a few modern ones.

I also found some vintage fabric!  Well, the first pic is an actual fabric cut.  It's a thin polyester and would be perfect for a maxi dress!  The floral is a lightweight cotton drape.  I see a cute skirt that will match an orange knit top I'm working on!

Next, here's a blast from my past thrifting!

I got this cute bead carrier, bin, thingy last year for about $4 and, here is what I made with some of the larger beads...

stitch markers for my knitting projects.

Until next time...
Peace and Junk Love!
